Apple's Beats Pill+ Bluetooth speaker goes down to a new all-time low price at Best Buy
Apple's snazzy Beats-branded audio accessories are often accused of not offering enough value for their exorbitant prices, but at least as far as the Pill+ portable Bluetooth speaker is concerned, that argument is currently invalid. For 24 hours only, the oblong sound system is available at $99.99 instead of the typical $179.99 from Best Buy, with a three-month Apple Music trial for new subscribers also included at no extra charge.
While that's not necessarily an especially great gift, the $80 discount on the already popular speaker makes it a killer bargain, trumping recent deals offered by a slew of major third-party retailers. It's probably needless to point out that the Beats Pill+ still costs 180 bucks when purchased directly from its manufacturer, as well as its Cupertino-based parent company, while Target charges $130 and Amazon as little as $110 at the time of this writing.
Bottom line, you won't be able to find this minimalistic yet stylish, lightweight but powerful and long-lasting Bluetooth speaker at a lower price anywhere else. That being said, if you're not a fan of Apple's (Product) RED program, you will have to look elsewhere for some decent savings on other paint jobs.
Naturally, the Beats Pill+ is compatible with Android handsets in addition to iPhones, promising to keep the lights on and the music playing for up to 12 hours on a single charge. Beats also claims the compact speaker can deliver "sound bigger than its size", thanks to a stereo active 2-way crossover system that creates an optimized sound field for dynamic range and clarity "across all genres of music."
Indeed, buyers seem to be mostly satisfied with what this relatively affordable product is capable of, at least based on the 4.8-star Best Buy average and 4.6-star Amazon score calculated from thousands of customer ratings and reviews. And mind you, very few of those people actually bought this bad boy at such a reasonable price as you can right now.
